Sewage Treatment

Aerofloat offers low maintenance, cost effective, sewage treatment solutions for remote establishments of up to 5000 people.

Aerofloat has extensive experience designing sewage treatment plants with either conventional equipment or using Aerofloat proprietory technology to provide a more mechanically simple, robust design. Whichever technology is chosen, all designs will provide superior effluent quality often with portable and modular options.

Aerofloat can deliver a sewage treatment solution uniquely tailored to your site and surrounding environment. Aerofloat’s engineers specialises in highly tailored solutions that meet unique challenges; from remote, and temporary mine sites to island resorts, estates, and other regional businesses.

Depending on the need, clients will have design options with Aerofloat’s vast product suite including access to its proprietary technology including: AeroMBBR (moving bed biofilm reactor technology), AeroSBR (sequence batch reactor technology) and AeroASR (activated sludge reactor technology).

Often more traditional systems do not provide the most economical and suitable solution for remote sites. Sewage treatment solutions in remote sites must account for challenging environments, the need to be easily transported and the ability to be re-used.

Oftentimes a mine site or similar industrial site is only temporary. Being able to readily move the system to another location can result in significant financial savings.

Experts in sewage treatment systems

Sewage treatment requires in-depth knowledge of chemical engineering and biological processes.

Rely on Aerofloat for your sewage treatment solution

Aerofloat’s team has decades of combined experience in rolling out traditional sewage treatment solutions. By combining in-house 3D modelling and CAD work, Aerofloat engineers allow clients to visualise the solution prior to transport and installation. Aerofloat’s patented and patent-pending technology solutions allow it to offer unique, sustainable systems.

Aerofloat’s sewage treatment systems are scalable and can be accessed remotely

Remote monitoring capabilities ensure that your company staff can log in even when off site, make adjustments as required and identify potential issues before they become a problem. Aerofloat’s engineers can also log in remotely and offer guidance or make adjustments to the system.

The Aerofloat difference

Aerofloat is known within the industry for its innovative and creative approach to remote site sewage treatment work.


AeroMBBR technology is a biological process commonly used to remove soluble contaminants such as dissolved sugars and proteins. This patent-pending technology feature is a simple, low maintenance and cost-effective solution for biological wastewater treatment.


AeroSBR technology is a suspended growth biological treatment process whereby the microorganisms are aerated, settled and the effluent decanted in the same reactor.


AeroASR technology is a process where suspended growth biological treatment requires the microorganisms to be clarified in a separate reactor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sewage treatment is vital for maintaining environmental health and sustainability in Australia. Effective treatment, exemplified by innovative solutions like those offered by Aerofloat, plays a crucial role in reducing the environmental impact of wastewater. It ensures the removal of harmful contaminants, such as BOD (Biochemical oxygen demand) and COD (Chemical oxygen demand), safeguarding water bodies and ecosystems.

Sewage treatment involves several key stages to effectively purify wastewater. The primary processes include:

  • Preliminary Treatment: Removal of large debris and grit.

  • Primary Treatment: Physical separation of solids and liquids through sedimentation.

  • Secondary Treatment: Biological processes to break down organic matter.

  • Tertiary Treatment: Advanced processes to further polish the effluent, often involving filtration and disinfection.

Each stage plays a crucial role in producing treated effluent that meets stringent environmental standards, ensuring its safe discharge back into the environment.

Sewage treatment processes exhibit varying energy intensities, mainly dependent on the methods used. Traditional plants, with mechanical processes like aeration, pumping, and equipment operation, often demand substantial energy. However, advancements such as membrane bioreactors and innovative reactor designs are actively working towards optimising energy usage in sewage treatment.

Biological treatment methods, like activated sludge processes and anaerobic digestion, can contribute to overall energy intensity, particularly during aeration. The wastewater treatment industry is proactively engaged in initiatives to enhance energy efficiency. This involves exploring the incorporation of renewable energy sources and adopting sustainable practices to strike a balance between achieving effective treatment outcomes and minimising the environmental impact, including energy consumption.
